Eucalyptus Launches Enterprise-Class Cloud Test Lab at CoreSite's Bay Area Data Center Campus

Dasher Technologies to Contribute on a Solution That Enables Enterprises to Validate Hosted Private and AWS-Compatible Hybrid Clouds

February 13, 2012 – CLOUD CONNECTCoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a U.S. provider of powerful, network-rich data centers, today announced that Eucalyptus Systems, creators of the most widely deployed on-premise cloud computing platform, has launched a new enterprise-class cloud test lab offering at CoreSite’s Bay area data center campus to address the growing demand for cloud computing technologies. The Eucalyptus Cloud Test Lab provides enterprises with a secure, fully functional hosted infrastructure as a service cloud to validate their cloud application migration strategies prior to implementation. The official product launch date is set for March 1, 2012.

Eucalyptus Cloud Test Lab is a complete cloud-ready data center solution with fast and easy setup. The solution, which includes hosting, hardware and Eucalyptus open source cloud software, enables customers to configure virtual cloud resources, experience full elastic-compute resource management, and demo their applications on private cloud software. To reduce the business and technical risks often associated with cloud adoption, enterprises can purchase the exact cloud environment used during the testing phase. Eucalyptus’ Cloud Test Lab will operate on innovative Dell infrastructure provided by Dasher Technologies.

“CoreSite is pleased to provide the data center infrastructure to support Eucalyptus’ new Cloud Test Lab offering,” said Brian Warren, VP of Product Management at CoreSite. “This offering provides our enterprise data center customers with a secure, risk-managed testing environment for their cloud migration strategies. The Eucalyptus Cloud Test Lab demonstrates CoreSite’s commitment to developing Cloud computing ecosystems for our customers.”

“By validating the technical and business benefits of specific use cases prior to migration, enterprises can deploy hosted private and hybrid clouds with a new level of confidence,” said David Butler, SVP of Marketing at Eucalyptus. “As part of Cloud Test Lab, customers can leverage the Eucalyptus partner ecosystem to evaluate a complete cloud solution, and benefit from a customer-focused, best-of-breed systems management approach.”
